Windows 7: Workfoldersystemtray.exe - This application could not be started

24 Mar 2015   #11


Thank you for looking into this Jane!

The reason for deploying automatically is because I think the user experience is better when it's already deployed when they receive the information that they have a new feature available with a user guide, instead of having them manually deploy it.

I also don't see any reason for our users not to have it. There's approximately 800-900 users where we configured it as optional because they don't need it that as much as the others.

Windows 7 Enterperise x64

I realize this thread is old, but I just spend a week uninstalling and reinstalled different versions of .NET to try to find the answer... in the end it was an easy fix, but nobody on the web has posted the answer yet ...
Change .netv2.0 to run in 64 bit mode instead of 32 bit.
1.Navigate to C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727 (yes, workfolders seems to use version 2)
2.ldr64.exe query – This will return 0x0000000 – if so then the 32 bit mode is running, this is incorrect
3.ldr64.exe set64 – This will change the value to 0x0000001.

More Info:
To run 32 Bit mode (if you have other apps that need 32 bit):
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\Ldr64.exe SetWow
To run 64 bit Mode:
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\Ldr64.exe Set64

Avoiding '<application name> is not a valid Win32 application' error.
OK, this is admittedly a strange one... I have used an old (probably a 16-bit) application as my time synchronizer this I've used for quite some time. Its name is TimeRC, and is a great synchronizer as it tracks moon phases along with the time (from selectable, multiple potential time servers)....
